Condolence from Rudy R on April 28th, 2017 10:06 am

Met him through his work, and I have to say he was one of the most down to earth hard working people I met. It was an honor to meet your child, lots of laughs and good times. My sincerest condolences to the family. Rest in Paradise brother Ty! You will be missed!

Condolence from Ryan Frye on April 28th, 2017 10:32 am

Though we hadn’t talked in a while, you were never far from thoughts. During a rebirth in my life, you came and enhanced it. You helped me see the beauty in life when I was mint able to. You reminded me to enjoy my life and take each moment to its fullest. I’m sad that I won’t hear you laugh or share a joke and a smile, but I’m happy you won’t have the darkness anymore. Only the light my brother. Thank you for being apart of this crazy human existence. My condolences to Tyler’s family.

Condolence from Anne Gorin on April 28th, 2017 11:24 am

I am at loss of words but would like to give my most sincerest sympathy and condolence to Tyler’s family, loved ones, and friends. He was the light of the party, in fact, he would light up any room the moment he would walk in…. He will be missed, oh so missed. Yours truly, Anne (his Frenchie Poop friend) <3

Condolence from Carrie Cano on April 28th, 2017 2:52 pm

I am just now hearing of his passing. I first met Tyler in high school and although we went to different schools, he grew to be a good friend and even my prom date my senior year of high school. I hadn’t talked to Tyler or seen him in years until running into him downtown bar tending at Cobra arcade bar. The last time I saw him was a month or two before I moved out to NYC. He even gave me a free drink and made sure to say hello. I remember telling my current boyfriend “he was my prom date and we got kicked out that night!” That was definitely one of the best memories I will have of him for sure! That’s just who he was- life of the party and adventure seeker for sure. He was also kind hearted, full of life and just wanting to be a friend to anyone and everyone. Tyler’s free spirit and genuine good hearted nature will never be forgotten. I will never forget you, Tyler. You will truly be missed by many! My sincerest condolences to your family and friends.

Condolence from Mitchell Alexander on April 28th, 2017 4:37 pm

Tyler was one of the happiest and funniest humans I’ve ever met. It was a pleasure working with and knowing him. He helped me be more comfortable in my own skin and for that i will always be thankful. Much love and good vibes towards his family and friends.

Condolence from Margaret Burke Bobbitt on April 28th, 2017 4:50 pm

Condolence from Gourdy Christian and Jane on April 28th, 2017 4:56 pm

Condolence from Tricia on April 28th, 2017 5:21 pm

I met Tyler years back and always thought so highly of him. He radiated joy and kindness and his smile was contagious. We weren’t ever close friends, but I knew well enough how wonderful of a person he was. He is loved by so many and my thoughts are with his friends and family.

Condolence from Randy & Melissa Randazzo on April 28th, 2017 8:51 pm

Our hearts break for all those who knew and loved Tyler, especially his mom and dad in their depth of sorrow. May God’s comfort blanket you during your grief.

Condolence from Fabian on April 28th, 2017 9:43 pm

I took several classes with Tyler in high school, went to New York, and graduated with my dear friend. The only memories I have are positive memories and I will never forget the good times. You truly impacted my life with your positive attitude and I promise you will never be forgotten. I am saddened by your absense but I know you are in a better place looking over all of us. I love you brotha.

Condolence from Joan Ellen Pearlman on April 29th, 2017 8:27 am

Condolence from Nicole (Elliott) Magnus on April 29th, 2017 9:41 am

Ann, I’m so terribly saddened for your loss. I imagine it’s hard to comprehend. Too young! Please accept my condolences for the whole his loss has created.

Condolence from Malkoon Family on April 29th, 2017 11:48 am

Dear Hintze Family,

We are so sorry for your loss. His life was a blessing, and though our encounters were all too brief, we remember them as meaningful along the journey. From Pack 340 Cub Scouts at St. Thomas to our last full family reunion style hugging embrace at the Cobra, like every encounter in between and with every Hintze we have known, we knew his kind heart. It is the Free Thinkers among us who advance the Human Spirit that struggle most with our Human Condition, often at the expense of personal gain.

Our Heart Felt Condolences,

The Malkoon Family

Condolence from Gloria Hines on April 29th, 2017 1:15 pm

Ann I am so sorry for your loss of Tyler. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Always remember his caring spirit forever in your heart. He was loved by so many ~ and will be greatly missed.
love you my dear friend….

Condolence from Michael T. Hunt on April 29th, 2017 8:49 pm

I met Tyler last January when Cobra opened for the first time and he was always the most fun, energetic dance machine, rap extraordinaire! I got to know him even more and always enjoyed his smile and attentive eyes. I will miss him very much and I know his amazing friends and family will too. I’m glad that energy cannot be destroyed only transferred so I know he’s not lost. My heart goes out to all of you. The most love.

– Michael Hunt

Condolence from Nicholas on April 29th, 2017 9:34 pm

Understanding, caring, patience, beauty and strength. These are five tenants to live by. And in time of enormous challenge, we may only find solace in one. I send you all of my personal strength. I pray that the sorrow is lifted

Condolence from Katie Hintze on April 30th, 2017 8:52 am

My heart goes out to my Uncle Jim, Aunt Ann and my cousins for this terrible loss. I am always going to miss his smile and laughter, but mostly his dance routine with my cousin – Aimee at weddings we have. Heaven gained a beautiful soul and I am glad he got to meet my grandfather, finally. Praying for time to help heal this loss we all are feeling, right now

Condolence from caroline v. bissell on April 30th, 2017 10:35 am

i was not fortunate enough to know tyler, but when i walked into the celebration last evening to honor his mother and grandmother and their family and saw enough people to populate a small town, i knew how much he was loved and will be missed. after reading the small bio card that was handed out, i was thoroughly convinced that ann and jim had created and nurtured a multi faceted, marvelous person. i am truly sad for everyone’s loss.

Condolence from Alvin Rollier & family on May 1st, 2017 4:16 pm

To the Hintze Family,
Please accept our deepest condolences for the loss of Tyler. We have fond memories of our Boy Scout days with your family. Even though nothing can prepare you for this kind of loss, you can take some comfort knowing that one day you will be reunited with him in Heaven.

The Rollier Family

Condolence from Dianne on May 1st, 2017 8:00 pm

I have known Tyler long enough to call him my son. I will miss how he always flirted with me he knew how to make this old lady smile and blush. I love you Tyler. My prayers go out to all that are hurting from our loss.

Condolence from Janet Torzala on May 1st, 2017 8:29 pm

Hintze Family,
So sorry to hear about about Tyler. Praying for all of you.
Janet (Grass) Torzala

Condolence from Cindy Bellant on May 4th, 2017 6:23 pm

So very sorry to hear of your son’s passing Ann. Although I didn’t know him personally, I have seen many of your memories and see that he is a bright spirit with humor, laughter and love for all. May God wrap you and all the Kelling women and families tightly in his loving arms and help you to continue to celebrate his spirit. Love to you all!
Cindy (Spence) Bellant

Condolence from Vicki Richards on May 6th, 2017 2:38 pm

I can’t begin to adequately express the depths of my sympathy after hearing this tragic news. My heart, thoughts and prayers go out to Tyler’s entire family and circle of friends…especially to Jim, Devin, Jessica, Logan and Ann. Tyler was a truly special and unique soul. I am so deeply sorry for your unimaginable loss.

Condolence from Guy Miklos on May 12th, 2017 5:01 am

My greatest sympathies to Tyler’s family.

I was so shocked when I received notification of Tyler’s death from Kathie. How could this be?! Tyler was so young, so full of life, fun, and adventure, he was so skilled socially and appeared to me un-phased by any situation, person or challenge that came his way. He was a wonderful support to my beloved Wally (David Wallace) while Wally was struggling with the progress of his terminal cancer. He cheered Wally out of morbid desperation numerous times, and Wally and I both enjoyed joking with him in ways that no-one else would have dared or seen fit.

I’ve been feeling very sad these last few days, not only because Tyler is gone, but also because when he died, he took with him a part of the living memory of Wally. Now, like Wally, what lives on of Tyler is our memories of him. He persists in our minds as long as we think of him. I will be thinking of him whenever I think of Wally. They’ve gone to the same place. When my time comes it will be a comfort to believe that I’ll be joining them.

I’ve just watched the memorial slide show on YouTube
The sky-dive had tears rolling down my cheeks. So full of life there. Why can’t he still be!

Dear Ann, I’m so sorry for you in particular. A mother should never have to suffer the loss of her child. Can there be anything more painful?
